About Me

We absolutely love what we do. Montessori Approach.
I am an OFSTED registered childminder since 2010.

I work with my husband and we are very passionate about providing the best for the children that join us.

We are both focused on the children's well being, safety and development.

We understand how much the children’s first years of life will impact their future and the adults they will turn to be.

We are inspired by the Montessori Method.

Visit to parks, libraries, playgroups,...plus many special outings. We believe children should be as much as they can outdoors to live and experience our beautiful world.

We always plan on doing plenty of baking, crafting, walking and exploring.

We have a dedicated playroom for the children as well as a beautiful garden.

First aider, clean driving license, CRB clear, all relevant insurances.

We are open Monday - Friday, from 7am to 6pm.

Below are the latest reviews for Cristiane Luchmun. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Every parent stresses when looking for their first childminder/nursery for their child and we had no regrets choosing Cris to do this very important job for us.

Our little boy has been with Cris for a year and has progressed so much, the changes we have seen in him are huge. They really did go out of their way to make him feel comfortable in the environment.

If I worked in Hatfield again I wouldn't hesitate about my options, I would definitely be knocking on their door.

Thank you for everything and your huge amounts of patience.

Cristina has accommodated and cared my daughter for more than 3 years starting since she was just 10 months. My daughter still adore Cristina so much!

As a working parent, it is very difficult to find a childcare that you can be assured of its quality and the happiness for your child / children. If you are looking for someone who REALLY cares for your child / children, I strongly recommend to visit her - she is a great, caring person who has a lot of experience in childcare. We are fully happy of all the aspects of her setting; activities (they do a lot of outing and planned activities), food (my daughter LOVED the food!), communication, etc.

I am very grateful that we met her and my daughter really enjoyed her time with Cris.

5 stars are not enough! Cristiane is over and above this rating system.
Cris was the first person my son had been left with since birth when he went to her aged 10 months. I know how difficult it can be to leave a baby for the first time when returning to work, she was the first person we met with and knew right away she was the right person for our son. The return to work was made so much easier knowing he was with someone who we knew genuinely cared about him and his wellbeing.Cristiane has provided him with a wonderful nurturing environment, where he is well stimulated, has fun, structure, encouragement and heartfelt care.
Cristiane provides a huge variety of activities for the children both at home and outside at playgroups, libraries and parks all tailored just right for the children's ages, so they are not bored or overstretched.
We were always kept updated with what our son had been doing, from what he had eaten, when he had slept to what activities he had enjoyed and his reactions to things going on around him. We knew what themes (colours/seasons etc) the children had been learning about so were able to continue those in conversation with him at home.
We were so sad to lose Cristiane due to her moving, otherwise our son would have stayed with her.
I couldn't recommend her highly enough, so if you have the opportunity for her to be your childminder grab it!

I met Cristiane when my son Jamie turned 1 year old. She was the first childminder we met and we felt comfortable with her so we decided to give it a go. I have to say, she is well worthy.
Jamie used to be a very shy boy when he started there. Over the past 18 months, he has improved so much in every way and thanks to Cristiane. Because of her patient, her passionate and her caring, Jamie has learnt a lot of things from her.
We were going to leave once due to moving to another place - Enfield . However, we visited so many childminders and we couldn't find anyone as good as Cristiane. So we came back to her because Jamie was so happy there, eat well, sleep well, play well. When I go to work, I don't need to worry about him at all because he is in the safe hands. What more can we ask? That's why I was willing to travel 10 miles in order to get a quality carer. She is not only just do her job but also does extra miles for the kids. Kids there love her so much in return of her love for them.
I am having my second one now and that is the only reason We are leaving her. I don't know how good her ofsted report is but for us, she is outstanding. Thank you Cris for caring and loving Jamie.

Thank you so much for your review, Mabel.
We are very sad to say goodbye to our charming and intelligent Jamie, but
happy he is leaving due to the arrival of his new baby brother. We believe it will be a magical time for him and your family.
Miss you all already.
Keep in touch,
Cristiane and Reza

My son has been with Cristiane for six months. He is growing into being a confident baby, thank you Cristiane, and also, for your continuous support.
Cristiane is caring, patient, calm and very organised. She provides a good quality care, within a happy and loving environment. The children she cares for are happy, safe and are stimulated with games, trips to playgroups,parks, museum.
I would recommend her to all parents
